Spinoza on the Eternity of the Human Mind

Philosophy and Theology 5 (2):103-113 (1990)
Abstract
Spinoza’s ideas on the eternity of the human mind have sparked much controversy. As opposed to most commentators, I argue that since substance is eternal, and the human mind can only be conceived in substance, the human mind must also be eternal. Only from a finite and partial view can the human mind be conceived of as having duration
